A must stop to try their fantastic Bread that they make and you must schedule a beautiful outing to see their fantastic dancers. It is breath taking to sit their and participate in this experience. You need to stop by when on your way through the Mission Trails. It is a must see!!!

The Tigua Indian Cultural Center and Museum is an outstanding place to learn about the history and the culture of the Tiguas. The Indian dancers were marvelous and taking photos and applauding the dancers were encouraged. The staff at the center were very helpful and informative and patiently answered our questions. Moreover, we found a very nice shop called "Eagle's... More

Have to check times before you visit. Sometimes it's not open when advertised. Makes a great addition to visiting the missions in the area.

Unfortunately we missed the dancing and bread baking. A couple of little shops were open and the Center had beautiful artifacts.

I went to the annual St. Anthony's feast the Tiguas have been celebrating for centuries. The event is not designed for the tourist which makes it more real and genuine. The event is celebrated every year on June 13. It starts in the morning with a service at the old mission church ( I hear it is the oldest or... More

This is an excellent place to Learn more about Native Americans and to see thier crafts and talents. The history was fascinating. We could have talked to one man for weeks! He shared all about his tribes history! It is well worth a stop. You won't be disappointed!
